Growing up in the 1930's and 40's in New York City, how could Walter Seldon not be a Jazz lover? It was the soundtrack of the city, from Blues to Bebop and beyond. In clubs, at concerts, and on the radio, he listened...and he collected as much of that great music as he could. Though he'd missed the Dixieland Golden Age of 1920's Harlem, it was one of his favorite genres. One of his fondest memories was from 1947 when he attended a recording session of Duke Ellington and his band, then caught a...

This is a collection of music from unsigned artists who utilized Myspace and/or Pure Volume as their main platform. A majority of the music found here is Metal, Emo, or Alternative. MISSION STATEMENT: In 2018, MySpace lost over a decade's worth of music uploaded by unsigned bands and solo artists. This loss was blamed on corrupted data during a server transfer gone awry, and it is theorized this may have been intentional so as to free up server space and cut costs to keep the website afloat....
